In the past 2 years, the maritime security industry has become a demanding area for private contractors in the Middle East. The need for armed guards aboard vessels sailing in areas of Somalia, Yemen, Mozambique and along the coast of Africa has risen and become a necessity for the protection of crew members and cargo.
